  • 1 round of soft goat cheese about 4 oz
  • 5 fresh figs a mix of green and purple, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • Some crushed walnuts
  • Some crushed pistachios
  • Some dried lemon thyme to garnish


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Place the goat cheese in the center of an 8” round ceramic, oven-safe dish.
  • Arrange the sliced figs around the goat cheese.
  • Scatter the crushed walnuts and pistachios over the top.
  • Drizzle the honey evenly over the goat cheese and figs.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is soft
  • Serve warm with your choice of crackers or toasted bread.



– This appetizer pairs well with a variety of crackers. I recommend whole grain or multigrain crackers for a healthier option.
– If you’re not a fan of walnuts or pistachios, feel free to substitute with other nuts like almonds or pecans.
– If figs are not in season, you can use dried figs or even substitute with other fruits like pears or apples.
– Remember, you can prepare this dish ahead of time and simply warm it up in the oven for 5 minutes before serving. However, serving it warm is highly recommended to fully enjoy the creamy, melted goat cheese.
– For the goat cheese, I highly recommend using Cypress Grove Goat Cheese, which can be found at Whole Foods. It has a fantastic flavor that pairs beautifully with the sweetness of the figs and honey.

    Easy to make and delicious. Just one thing: It turned out too sweet. I’d recommend reducing the honey back or not at all because figs are sweet on their own..
